According to BBC RadioTimes magazine, Radiohead will take over BBC 6 Music during Christmas week (starting 22nd December). The band will co-present, make guest appearances and select music (they have been given free run of the BBC music archives).
Yesterday, Radiohead were on BBC1Â´s Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. They performed "2 + 2 = 5" (live as far as I could tell), but were not interviewed by Jonathan Ross. The show is repeated on Sunday 9th November at 1:00am.
The next single from "Hail to the Thief" will be "2+2=5", due for a UK release of 17th November 2003. The single will be available as two separate CDs, 12" Vinyl and also on DVD. CD1 will contain the Christian Vogel remix of "Myxomatosis" and a demo of "There there". CD2 will contain the Four Tet remix of "Scatterbrain" and the 1st Ocean Way mix of "I Will". The 12" will contain the "Myxomatosis" and "Scatterbrain" remixes, while the DVD is rumoured to contain an excerpt from The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth of All Time and possibly a "Sit down. Stand up" video. In addition there is some speculation that Radiohead may release a remix album sometime next year containing the various mixes of "Hail to the Thief" tracks.
Radiohead have been awarded "Best Act In The World Today" at the 14th Annual Q Awards. However, the band refused to attend the ceremony after Q Magazine allegedly called them "boring" and instead sent a silent video message. Nigel Godrich also picked up the "Best Producer" award for Radiohead's "Hail to the Thief" album. Other winners included Blur, The Thrills, The Cure, Duran Duran and Dexys Midnight Runners.
Jonny Greenwood is to release a Solo album on October 27th 2003 entitled "Bodysong". The album is the soundtrack to the new Simon Pummell film of the same name due out on December 5th 2003. Colin Greenwood also performs on one of the 13 tracks. The complete track listing can be found on the NME website.
